I'm looking for a low-budget solidbody guitar, but not sure which brands are any good. are Oldfield, westfield, or nevada any good? I'm pretty much set on a les paul for it's sound and controls. I like to play I wide range of music, from blues to metal to jazz.

before you settle on solidbody

bolt on necks aren't that bad these days and ibanez has some solid prices

'08 Ibanez S5470 Prestige
Gibson SG Special - discontinued teal finish
Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier
4x12 Mesa Oversized Slanted Cab
BOSS TU-2
iSP Decimator

Epiphones and LTD 400's and up are pretty decent.

Dont get an Ibanez because any Ibanez under $700 will suck, majorly.

I dont have any experience with Agiles so I cant say.

Yes I like the look of an epiphone, but what about brands like oldfield?
